    This ideology has been added to the wiki due to winning a Subreddit OC ideology contest.

    "The basic principle of subversion is to screw up the perception of reality of your enemy to such an extent that he does not percieve you as an enemy. And your system, your civilization and your ambitions appear to him as an alternative. You cannot subvert an enemy who does not want to be subverted."

    Contrarianism is an economically, culturally, and socially variable ideology whose only defining feature is opposing any currently prevailing political ideologies and their respective policies. Contrarianism does not have any distinct policies of its own, sometimes taking an opposite stance to the powers that be, but often providing no alternative at all, merely leveling criticism without offering any substitute.

    In practice, Contrarianism really only works at all when holding an existing government to account, typically proving unelectable. It is a prime example of an ideology that makes for a much better opposition than it does an incumbent.


    Contrarianism believes solely in berating and lamenting existing political norms, whatever they may be. Whilst this often sees it occupy left-wing or progressive territory, there are no fixed Contrarian ideals, and under a left-leaning regime, Contrarianism could also function as a vehicle for reactionary right-wing thought.


    ED.png Encyclopedia Dramatica Model

    The Encyclopedia Dramatica Model represents the ideology of Encyclopedia Dramatica, a general contrarian, satirical online community centered around a wiki that acts as a "troll archive". Its primary purpose is to write satirical articles about internet phenomena in the most vulgar and lulzy way possible. Anything is mockable from left to right, so long as the article strives for "lulz", then it is acceptable. The culture bears familiarity with early internet culture, especially that relating to 4chan.png 4chan.


    Whether anyone else says an opinion or even an objective fact, Contrarianism goes out of the way to say the opposite, no matter how absurd or illogical it is.

    Basically, the person who hates on <insert popular thing here> because everyone is talking about it, usually without even digging into why it's popular. They just hate it because they think it will make them a much cooler person.

    Critical Thinkers


    • Ultraprogressivism.png Revolutionary Progressivism - I like how you make things change, but if the government gets too progressive, I will have to become a reactionary, and then we can't be friends.
    • Reactcross.png Reactionaryism - I like how you make things go back to a golden age. But if the government gets too reactionary, I will have to become a progressive, and then you can't come to my birthday party.
    • Nrx.png Neoreactionaryism - Geek son of above.
    • Reactlib.png Reactionary Liberalism - And also his moderate son who's mildly more pro-status quo.
    • Radape.png Radical Apoliticism - We both think that the status quo sucks, but we don't need to kill all ideologies.
    • Fash.png Fascism - You used to be part of the status quo during the Second World War but now you're not even mainstream anymore.
